Fantasy Impact: Samuel Girard has become a key member of the Colorado Avalanche defense over the past two-seasons. Girard finished the 2018-19 season with 4 goals and 27 points, while playing nearly 20 minutes a game. At only 21-years old it is a safe bet that his offensive production will continue to grow. Along with Cale Makar, and Bowen Byram, Girard will be part of one of the most exciting young defense corps in the NHL. There is still plenty of opportunity for growth for Samuel Girard in 2019-20, as he will be counted on to help offset the loss of Tyson Barrie.

Samuel Girard buried his first goal of the season on Friday night helping the Avs beat the Senators 6-3.

Fantasy Impact: Along with it being Girards first goal of the season, it was the first goal scored by the Avalanche defensive corps. He was floating open through the slot and a stray rebound found the stick of Nathan Mackinnon, only to be passed to Girard and he quick released one right passed Craig Anderson. He'll look to ride the momentum with a back to back game tonight vs. Minnesota.
